Hello again!

Hello!  I am still in the land of the living, even if it seems I dropped off the face of the planet!  😉  I have done a terrible job keeping up on my blogging.  Real life has been super full as of late and the blogging dropped off.  Whoops!  I decided to post a quick update to let you know what has been happening in my little world.

-I worked.  A LOT.  My coworker (who takes some of my days so that I become a part time worker rather than full time) had a daughter getting married this month!  She (understandably) took a bunch of time off which meant that I worked nearly full time hours.  Ouch.  I am definitely not used to that!

-My work shoes were completely worn out and I paid for it BIG time!  I limped all week at work and at home because of my crappy shoes.  Yikes!  The number one rule of working on cement floors is to wear good shoes!  You can wreck your back, knees, hips, and feet.  I am an x-ray tech and I see the damage we do to ourselves all the time.  I know better than to wear bad shoes.  Anyway.... I had bought new ones but with my pregnancy my feet changed and they were much too tight.  I broke down and bought new ones and I am happy to report that I am no longer limping or in pain!  Whew!

-We went on Hubby's family "camping" weekend.  It was fun.  Miss. E was sick, however so that wasn't fun.

-Miss. E had to have stitches this week.  She fell off a chair and into a bed frame at our hotel and cut her head open.  Poor kiddo.  She was brave and did fairly well with the stitches.  I seriously want to bubble wrap her.  You know?  Is that so wrong?

-Baby has been moving lots which I find so comforting.😍  Hubby felt baby kick for the first time the other day.  We had our first OB appointment in the city and I am very happy with the plan that my OB and I have.  I really like my doctor, which is fantastic.

-I ordered a few baby items online that we have decided to purchase new.  Most of our baby items are going to be second-hand this time but there were a few things I wanted to get new.  It is so exciting and fun to start getting ready for baby!

-I have been working on trying to minimize some items in our home again.  I did, however, go through all of the donation boxes.  I pulled out the few baby items that I was planning to donate and packed them away for the new little one.

-My little brother is moving closer to home and I couldn't be happier!  I really enjoy seeing him and I hope we will see a lot more of him when he moves closer.


  1. I have been operation baby prep mode for a few weeks now, this weekend was a super productive one! Baby's coming in about a month. Eek! So glad you got some good shoes - being pregnant and having hurting feet are not a good combination! Hope everyone is feeling bettter and you are feeling good too!

    1. Wow! A month! That is soon! Good luck with all of your prep!

  2. Oh no, poor Miss E! I'm sure that was scary for everyone! Wow, I don't think I realized before that you were an x-ray tech. That's so cool! I'm generally fascinated by medicine, but x-rays kind of freak me out. I'm doing better these days though and actually want to look at them (as opposed to hiding, like when I broke my thumb as a kid!)!

    1. LOL! It is usually the lab portion of my job that freaks people out. X-rays are kind of strange, but they are super helpful. :)
